BBNC AFN Shareholder ReceptionBack to Events
October 18, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
BBNC will be hosting a shareholder reception during the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention on Thursday, October 18, 2018 in the BBNC Atrium, tentatively from 5-7 p.m.
Join us for door prizes, refreshments, food, and fun!
We will also be accepting non-perishable food donations for the Chignik region during the week of AFN Convention from October 17 to October 20.
The communities of Chignik, Chignik Lagoon, Chignik Lake, Perryville, and Ivanof Bay are experiencing economic hardship due to historically low sockeye salmon returns this year. As of July 30, 2018, the sockeye salmon harvest was only .0922% of the previous ten-year average. In response, the Governor declared an economic disaster for the region.
Food donations will be accepted at the Bristol Bay Building (111 W. 16th Avenue – donation boxes will be located on each floor) and at the AFN Convention (Dena’ina Center at 600 W. 7th Ave) at the following tables:
– Bristol Bay Native Corporation
– Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium
– Office of the Governor
